What's everybody's plan for this Weekend?

Recommended Posts

My original plans fell through and now I need a plan. I'm trying to decide if I should go North, South, or West (I live close to Forest Lake so I'm already east).

The problem is that I like pulling the boat, putting in, and firing up the motor. I like hunting lakes. I'm not asking for any honey holes but would like to here about some areas where there are SOME mad birds flying. The sky's seem pretty empty. Willing to drive a couple hours at least.

What do you guys think?

Hunting McGregor area. Last weekend hardly any ducks around so hopefully some calendar birds moved in since there wasn’t much weather to push them over the week. Don't expect much sat morning but I am going to be on a good migratory lake sunday morning with a large diver spread for the big North wind we are supposed to have. Hopefully that will create a big push. Headin to ND wednesday night. My dad is going out Sunday so hopefully he will be able to put me on a spot thursday morning so I don't have to spend too much time scouting. Good luck this weekend fellas.

I have heard my buddy saying good things about the Mississippi Backwaters south of the cities. West was a bust for us last weekend, very few ducks around. I would say either north or south.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
